Miss­ing

By Sue Whit­ing, Walker Books, $19.99 .................................................... What a beau­ti­fully writ­ten book. I ad­mit to a few tears while read­ing this novel about a teenage girl whose mother goes miss­ing.

Mackenzie’s mother van­ishes while on a re­search trip in the jun­gles of Panama. The nar­ra­tive flicks back from now (miss­ing 114 days) to then (miss­ing four days) and is told through Mackenzie’s eyes. It’s an emo­tional roller­coaster as the search con­tin­ues. A fan­tas­tic story any­one over the age of 10 would en­joy.

I’ve Got My Eyes On You by Mary Hig­gins Clark, Simon& Schuster, $32.99
